He lived for 41 days without food - He took Santhara - Samadhi Maran

Happy Birthday to Late Mr Jethalal S. Zaveri (Father).
  • Born April 17, 1911
  • Santhara (Samadhi or Fast-unto-death) November 17, 1993. 

This incident changed his life forever when Mr Jethalal Zaveri just retired from Bharat Bijlee Ltd. 


After he retired, he requested Guru Acharya Shri Tulsi, for some work. What can I do for the Jain community? That time Guru told him to "sit quietly, and practice - do nothing - अक्रिया - that is Dhyan. Thoughtlessness". He accepted gingerly. A person who has been active all his life is now told to sit and close eyes. How is that?

Then he studied Preksha Dhyan, understood, the importance of अक्रिया! The benefit of thoughtlessness. Not only he mastered Preksha Dhyan, but gave training to Shramnis, wrote several books in English, and conducted thousands of Shibir's, all over India and abroad. 

Jetha Bhai was awarded Preksha Pravakta - He conducted hundreds of Preksha Dhyan Shibirs - wrote and translated many books on Preksha Mediation. He explained meditation from a scientific point of view. 

Today we remember ‘Jethabhai’, as a leading industrialist (MD of Bharat Bijlee Ltd.), a great teacher of Preksha Meditation system, and as the author of several books about Jain philosophy.

In the last ten years of his lifespan, he started getting spiritual power! As if ageing had stopped! 

In front of me, all these have happened, right in our own Zaveri family. I am grateful to my Papaji. 

Jetha Bhai was a leading industrialist of his time. He was the founder Director of Bharat Bijlee Ltd., manufacturing motors and transformers. 

After he retired at the age of sixty, he learnt meditation system called Preksha Dhyan. He learned and practised it and mastered it. He has conducted hundreds of Meditation Camps (shibirs) all over India. At the age of 84, he fell sick. He was taken at the Cardiac Hospital. The Doctor said his time has come; the heart can fail at any time. Several medicines, injections, etc. were given in the Intensive Care Unit. 

He asked Doctor that is there anything more medical treatment can do. The doctor said he had tried his best, now only prayers. 

He had already decided to take the Samthra when such a moment comes. He took the wow of fast unto death. 

All medicines were stopped. To our surprise, we found him absolutely alright in about a week time. In fact, his memory and other sense were sharp. Of course, the body had become almost skeleton. He was even giving sermons (spiritual lectures) when hundreds of people came for his darshan (to wish him bye-bye).  

Jethabhai was a rational student of modern science and engineering and it can be safely presumed that his decision was taken after carefully weighing every aspect of the matter. He decided to renounce food and medicines. He remained firm to his resolve. That was in spite of the fact that all his six sons and one daughter were capable of doing everything under the sun to keep him alive and healthy.

Being well known in the Electrical Industry as 'Bhishmapitamaha of Electrical industry of India' many leading professionals visited from business and industry. He was chairman of IEMA, also leading the Indian Standards and many such organizations. He was the only one to get a Technical Collaborations from Siemens (Germany) in India to manufacture Electric Motors in India. The factory is situated on Thane-Belapur Road (near Mumbai). 

Something worth noting: Jetha Bhai asked everyone to give him something. Guests thought, is he asking for money? No, he said to take a wow to leave one bad habit. A book was kept at the entrance. While going, everyone wrote what they have given up. Some people gave up Smoking, some left drinking, and so on. 

During those 41 days, we could see his spiritual energy was high. Unbelievable to see how a person without eating can remain alive, that too who was at a death bad in the ICU. He was fond of solving the Crossword puzzle in Times of India, even during the Santhara days (the point is the brain was sharp and active). 

When he was asked, are your not afraid of dying? He said I do not have the desire to live, nor I am scared of dying. 
Jineka moh nahi hai air marine ka dar nahi hai. 

Many people practice and preach the science of living. Jethabhai not only did this but also demonstrated the science of dying. 

He embraced Samthara and left his body on November 17 1993. 

Today we remember ‘Jethabhai’, as a leading industrialist (MD of Bharat Bijlee Ltd.), a great teacher of Preksha Meditation system, and as the author of several books about Jain philosophy.

We pay tribute Shri Jetha Bhai Zaveri, on his hundred and ninth birthday.  

Samadhi Maran: We celebrated when he passed away because it was his Santhara. Fast unto death - for 41 days no food. Only water. That is Samadhi.

Jetha Bhai Zaveri is a unique personality, a legend of our lifetime! 

स्वयं सत्य खोजें! सबके साथ मैत्री करें!

Woman of Substance - Dr Amrapali Zaveri

An inspiring story of a woman Research Scientist!

Tribute to the Indian Women Professional Amrapali.


Dr Amrapali  J. Zaveri, Assistant Professor of Data Engineering, The University of Amsterdam, Netherlands. Postdoctoral Researcher at Maastricht University, Netherlands.

Sheroes of the world! 

Late Dr Amrapali Zaveri (aka Cooky): Suffered a massive stroke. Age 35. January 24, 2020. Declared Brain Dead by Doctor at Maastricht University Hospital, The Netherlands. After passing away helped many lives by donating several organs!

The ultimate gift – the gift of life!
We feel proud of Amrapali Zaveri who donated five organs that were donated and successfully transplanted in the Netherlands and Germany; giving new lives to four people:
  1. A woman between the ages of 60 and 65 received a gift of her LUNGS.
  2. A woman between the ages of 50 and 55 received a gift of her LIVER.
  3. A man between the ages of 50 and 55 received a gift of her RIGHT KIDNEY.
  4. A man between the ages of 45 and 50 received a gift of her PANCREAS AND the LEFT KIDNEY.

Amrapali departed for heavenly abode on January 24, 2020, at age 35! 

What an Honor! Tribute by the Maastricht University: The Flag was displayed at half-mast! 28 January 2020.


Done PhD (first woman in Zaveri family to get a PhD), lived in four countries (Singapore, Germany, the US, and the Netherlands).

M.Sc. from Manipal University, India.

Postdoc for 15 months at Stanford University, USA (2016-2017). She was about to join Amsterdam University as an Assistant Professor (Promotion).


Highlights:
  • Invited to give a talk at Vrije University at the User-Centric Data Science group.
  • A presentation was given in Prague, Czech Republic.
  • Conducted a Workshop on Citizen Science and Crowdsourcing. 17 May 2019.
  • A session with MHeNs School for Mental Health and Neuroscience.
  • Symposium on Biases in Human Computation, Crowdsourcing, Sheffield, UK. October 24, 2019.

Google Scholar link   
From 2010-2015, she was a PhD student at the University of Leipzig, with the AKSW research group in Germany focusing on Semantic Web, Linked Data and particularly Data Quality.

Since 2017 a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute for Data Science at Maastricht University, Netherlands.

Amrapali's pioneering research focused on exploring, as she often put it, “the optimal combination of HUMANS and MACHINES towards data quality assessment.”  She believed that we can expand the store of valuable knowledge by learning from artificial intelligence, but that humans are needed “in the loop” to make sure that machine models are fed accurate, reliable, and reproducible data. Assessments by untrained and expert people to improve machine models have been widely used, and Amrapali’s innovation was to predict how to deploy human effort to reach a particular threshold of data quality under a range of conditions.

Globetrotter: Traveled alone to Eighteen countries, paper presentations, conferences, and managed to explore them despite tight schedules.

Featured in a German TV show. Expert in Indian Bollywood Dance. Choreographer for dozens of German ladies and performed publicly at Leipzig.

In short, Cooky greeted every person with a big smile and sparkling eyes full of life and love. She was a great mentor to her students and her peers, filling them with ideas and encouragement. She tackled her work with vigour and determination. She was true to herself and her friends and family, a shining example to all on living a genuine life!

Studied in St. Mary's School in Pune and Graduated from Fergusson College. Born in a Spiritual Jain Zaveri family. Grandfather did Santhara (Jain Fast) and one Uncle is a Jain monk, Prof. Muni Mahendra Kumar.

She took parents around the world and several wildlife sanctuaries. Shravan for Parents! Mother Jayshree Zaveri and Father Jyotindra Zaveri are so proud to be recognized as Amrapali's parents!

बेटी माता और पिता की पहचान बने और क्या चाहिए? (Beti parent ki pahchan bane aur kya chahiye).

We believe in life after death! The soul never dies.
Finally: Play your role in life with such a passion, that even after curtains come down the applause doesn't stop!
